Michiko also provides physiotherapy care for binding, tucking and packing:

  • Chest Binding is often considered a necessary daily activity for mental and emotional health benefits. There are some negative health outcomes including overheating, shortness of breath, rib fractures and/or back pain. Physiotherapy can improve breathing and relieve pain. Michiko can also provide education on alternative types of binding that can improve function but still affirm gender identity.
  • Tucking provides a smooth appearance of the genital area, hiding external genitalia. If tucking is important to you, Michiko can support you through a selection of adhesives and provide care for any pelvic pain and dysfunction.
  • Packing creates an appearance of a bulge in the genital area. A care plan can be developed to discuss different types of packers and maintain good skincare.
